    Comics Bulletin - Dominic Davies Jan 5, 2006

    What we have been left with is the beginning of the climax to Ellis' "Invincible" reboot and old fans and new have every reason to be excited. Tony Stark is finally Iron Man inside and out, and you won't believe what he can do. Read Full Review

    Anyway, this is a great book. I should make a nod to the ending. It's a shocker, but I think careful readers will see how Stark gets out of it. Pick it up yourself and see. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Sep 3, 2008

    Invincible Iron Man is probably the best thing that could've happened to the character post-Civil War. It paints him as a bona fide hero and brilliant industrialist, and goes a long way in repairing the character sabotage that's still occurring even today in certain parts of the Marvel Universe. It's refreshing to see someone treat Tony Stark with respect and reverence. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Sep 2, 2008

    There are one or two omissions from the story - Pepper doesn't really get much attention despite the revelation of her new powers last issue, and the simultaneous terrorist attacks on the various different Stark facilities seem to grind to a halt once the big fight starts - but for the most part, this is a very solid, satisfying read that also shows just how strong a character Iron Man is as a result of the changes that his character has gone through over the last few years.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 4, 2008

    The opening pages are pretty weak and I really dislike the faux realistic art (aka traced / referenced), but solid ending and satisfying action. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Sep 4, 2008

    Invincible Iron Man #4 was another unimpressive read. I do not even think that the shallow story that Fraction delivers even qualifies for fun and entertaining mind candy like other action and adventure themed comic books on the market. Still, I would imagine that if you enjoy action packed issues and do not care about getting much in the terms of a quality story then you will probably enjoy this issue. Obviously, if you like Fraction's style of writing then you will also probably enjoy this issue. Read Full Review
